7 GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR YOUR WILL 1. READ THE WILL. Read the entire Will first. If you do not understand something, ask your lawyer to explain it to you. Take the Will to your attorney for review and completion of any particular matters not covered by your Will. 2. DATE AND SIGN THE WILL. 3. We recommend you execute TWO originals of your Will. Keep one in a safe place like a bank safe deposit box, and give one to the named Executor. 4. WITNESSES. Date and sign the Will and have at least two (2) witnesses sign it. Most state laws require that a Will be signed by at least two witnesses, each of whom must be concurrently present and witness the testator's signing of the Will. The witnesses should also understand the instrument they sign is the testator's Will. Any competent adult can generally be a witness to a Will. However, it is strongly recommended that witnesses NOT be beneficiaries of the Will. In some states, a Will (or parts of a Will) may be presumed to be invalid if the Will is signed by a beneficiary of the Will, or by an otherwise "interested" person. Most states create a presumption that interested witnesses may have procured the devise in the Will by duress, fraud, or undue influence. 5. SELF-PROVING AFFIDAVIT. Your Will includes a separate attachment for a Self-Proving Affidavit. A self-proving affidavit is not required in all states. However, it is recommended to help facilitate your Will being easily admitted to probate with regard to the authenticity of the signatures contained in the Will. 6. We recommend that you consult with an attorney to make certain that this Will is appropriate for your legal needs.
